The Sunshine of Their Smiles.
The 'kids' from Jurong Secondary School (1977) held their Reunion at our abode from July 23-25 - and this lovely photograph of them taken by my brother Mus aka sunnysideup says everything I want to say about those three days.
Amongst them are two Chinese, two Indians, one Peranakan and two Malays. It is vital that I state their racial background because their close friendship which they nurtured for over 30 years since they left school bears testimony to what Singaporeans and Malaysians should be and can be.
I have decided to keep this happy picture on my side-bar, to remind me that some thirty plus years ago I managed to do something right.
The complete gory details of that Reunion will come later.
Shyama, I hope you are now safely ensconced in Jakarta.
Roy (Raden Rohaya), have a safe journey back to Perth and your kids on Monday.
As for the Singapore lasses: Irene, Lely, Oi Bek and Ruqxana, keep on swinging.
Din will have to polish up his act before Ben comes along to challenge his thorny status amongst the roses.
